"There are few living now who can recall travelling the winter freight trails over frozen rivers and lakes or crossing the hundred mile long Great Barrier of muskegs, swamps, bridgeless rivers and creeks between Athabasca Landing and Sawridge, on Lesser Slave Lake, during the summer season to look for locations on which to build homes. In this raw, wild land, winters were too long and too cold; summers with hordes of mosquitoes and numerous other blood sucking insects were too short, but that was compensated for with almost endless daylight hours and sunshine that produced endless daylight hours and sunshine that produced a rapid growth of vegetation, both wild and cultivated." - Introduction. Average wear. Bit of writing atop first blank leaf, otherwise clean and unmarked. Binding intact. A sound vintage copy of this wonderful local history and indispensable genealogical reference.
